Publisher's summaryEdit

Anakin Solo is now eleven—and headed for the Jedi academy! The Force is very strong with him—he can feel it. And his uncle Luke thinks it is time for him to start his training…

Before she joined the academy, Anakin's friend Tahiri lived with a strange and dangerous tribe. She knows nothing of her real parents—or how she came to live with the treacherous Tusken Raiders. Tahiri knew the day would come when she'd learn everything about her past…and that day has come!

But first, Tahiri must prove she's worthy. And that means she must complete a deadly task that will test her skills as a warrior and a Jedi Knight. With Anakin by her side, she will have to use the Force like never before.

If Tahiri succeeds, she will learn how her parents lived—and died. But if she fails, she and Anakin may have to pay the ultimate price…

Plot summaryEdit

Prior to her training at the Jedi Praxeum, Tahiri Veila had lived with the dangerous Tusken Raiders in the deserts of Tatooine. The young Human remembers nothing of her parents and how she came to be with the Sand people. Despite this, she knew the day would come when she would learn about her past. At last, it has come!

Before she and Anakin Solo could learn how to break the curse of the Golden Globe, the Sliven—leader of the Tusken tribe—that raised her demanded that Tahiri returned to Tatooine. But first, she will have to prove that she is worthy. This includes fighting a deadly krayt dragon that will test her skills as a Jedi. Both companions will have to use the Force as never before. If she succeeds, she will learn who her parents were and will be able to free the trapped souls within the Golden Globe. However if she fails, both will perish.
